OK but: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is unlikely to relieve your nausea. If the drugs mentioned were recently introduced, make sure that your symptoms are not just side effects. In order to control the nausea, you will need to know what is causing it. Rx drug is often effective if necessary. If you suffer from migraine, then this is how it shows up.
